The Sessh welcome new drummer and vocalist Chad Johnson

Want to thank everyone for a great summer season! Many of you may already know that our stick man and Ape Tit brain child, Jeff Jani, is moving to the Big Easy. We are stoked for him to be in the midst of the best music in the world! We are certain that he will grow into an even bigger monster on the kit than he already is! We plan to be doing some shows together both in New Orleans as well as Colorado, but in the meantime, we are happy to let you all know that one of Denver's finest drummers, Chadzilla Johnson is going to take over the stick thrown for the band. I've worked with Chadzilla with the Leo Nocentelli band as well as my former band Little Hercules. I've also witnessed him destroy drum kits during Polytoxic shows. We welcome a new chapter in the band's history and pledge to keep the Funk alive! Viva the FUNK!
